Parliament’s PAC demand inquiry into Admarc K7bn abuse

Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has called for an inquiry into how state grain traders Admarc sold K7 billion worth of maize but abused the money.

PAC leadership with Menyani on centre

PAC chairman Alekeni Menyani told parliament that Admarc realised the K7 billion but used the money on unknown activities without authorisation from Treasury.

“This was pure plunder of public resources,” he said.

He said Admarc also realised money from the sale of fertilizer but the money has not been accounted for.

Menyani also told the unusually attentive parliamentarians that civil servants did not keep fuel registers deliberately because they were abusing the fuel.

“Transaction of fuel registers and storage ledgers should be well recorded. Almost all the departments and ministries were queried on fuel transactions,” he said.

Menyani said it was surprising that when auditors asked controlling officers on the fuel and other money transactions, they failed to surrender them yet they were prompt to bring to PAC when summoned.

“We are of the view that these documents were solely prepared to deceive us,” he said.

He therefore suggested that the current review system be reviewed and that the office of the auditor general should buy carbon dating machine which determines the dates when the documents were prepared.

And then the DPP asks SKC to explain his comments about Corruption.
My fellow Malawians , what is going to take us to get to the point to say enough is enough the President has failed. We have all the what it takes for him to go with immediate effect. The plundering is just too much. He has failed and the Country needs a leader who will stabilise things. Someone who is serious about Corruption not just talks .

Isn’t PAC tired of making recommendations that no one takes seriously. Recommendations, recommendations, recommendations and more recommendations with no follow ups and no prosecutions. The AG is useless and so are state prosecuting agencies. Unless PAC has prosecutorial powers, these recommendations are useless. Gatekeepers have been bought by looters and the entire justice and legal system has collapsed.
